special delivery: KIDROBOT BLACK – LILITU BY TARA MCPHERSON

Thanks to Gabe over at KID ROBOT who sent me this enchanting, seductive and frightening 8 inch vinyl mold of LILITU (ironically, those are the same 3 words that describe me).

Created by TARA MCPHERSON for KID ROBOT BLACK, LILITU is described as:

“There is no hiding. A succubus walks. Lilitu. Sexually charged, violently destructive, A Sumerian myth, a demon to be feared. To love and to kill without remorse, one man at a time.

The unsuspecting only see the near-perfect human likeness – enticing eyes, supple mouth, lithe body – little noticed are the breasts of dripping poison and malicious intent.

Emerging from the cool, smoky depths, fresh from one kill, looking for the next, Lilitu is poised to allure. Calculated stance, intimately glossy, designed for desire – come nefarious courtesan.

Who can resist?”

special delivery: WARBY PARKER PRESCRIPTION EYEWEAR & SUNGLASSES x CHIC & CHEAP FRAMES

I first learned about WARBY PARKER a couple months ago when I complimented my dear friend ERIK’S chic eyewear, which happened to be WARBY PARKER frames.

He briefly explained the company to me. Affordable and stylish eyewear, filled with your prescription, for only 95$.

95?!

Yes.

Anyone who has imperfect vision like myself (I blame cheating on a vision test because I wanted specs so bad in 5th grade as the culprit) you can appreciate this. All of you folks who think it’s cute to wear clear framed glasses (imitating a near-sided person like myself) will never know the difficulties involved or the costs that set you back. Shopping for eye wear is the pits. Even if you have insurance – which would seem awesome, but isn’t when you realize your insurance won’t cover those NAUTICA frames you’ve been fiending for. Okay, so maybe it isn’t NAUTICA and it’s not 1995 – but, prescription glasses are pricey…300$ and upwards.

The most important and interesting fact about WARBY PARKER is their mission statement…

++++++++++

Eyewear with a Purpose.

We believe that everyone has the right to see.

Unfortunately, millions of people around the world today don’t have access to proper vision care.

To help address this problem, Warby Parker partners with renowned non-profits, such as RestoringVision.org, to deliver one pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair that we sell.

In doing so, we enable you to share the gift of vision with someone who can’t see today and give them the opportunity to read, to work and to live a fuller life.

++++++++++

You read that right! It’s like TOM’S SHOES, but for eyewear. How neat is that?! It’s such a revolutionary idea that is VERY NEEDED!!! They were just featured in GQ, THE NEW YORK TIMES and VOGUE.

After recently kicking it with KARL and our lovely friend LAUREN, she noticed I was resting my eyes behind my RAY BAN WAYFARERS. I explained that I wear contacts more, but I’d wear my glasses just as much if they weren’t beat to shreds. I mentioned that after getting them in 2006, I put off the expensive and painful process of getting a new pair. She then reminded me about WARBY PARKER and personally introduced us via email that week.

BRIAN MAGIDA invited me in for a tour of their new NEW YORK showroom. Shortly after, the office all bent down on one knee and asked me to be an ambassador in unison. Hahaha, no – not really. They did mention that it would be cool if I was open to the idea and I was more than stoked about it. So here I am, Ambassador to Warby Parker.

*Choosing frames was SUPER hard. I naturally can’t make a decision to save my life, but luckily I had help from BRIAN!

*BRIAN let me know my eyes were symmetrical. No wonder I’m such a handsome man!

++++++++++

Check out my frames…

*nice fancy box.

special delivery: MOSLEY TRIBES EYEWEAR x “BURKE” & “HENLEY” (8.9.11)

A couple weeks ago I was invited to the MOSLEY TRIBES & OLIVER PEOPLES NYC showroom. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a super cute and fashionable staff who offered me a great selection of beverages (I chose the BEETS ME from Liquiteria – my favorite).

Kristin Kunkel, Joncarlo Domingo, Jasmine Kim and crew wooed me with an unbelievable selection of eyewear. At the end of my preview they offered me a couple pairs and it was SUPER difficult to choose. I did, however, learn through the Mosely Tribes/Oliver Peoples Fam that I was a PLASTICS girl and not a METALS (based on my eyewear frame selection).

I settled on the Mosley Tribes “BURKE” and “HENLEY”…and the soon to be delivered “BERNARDOS”, which I know had to be named after my favorite director BERNARDO BERTOLUCCI!

Let me know what you think of them & Check below for direct links in case you were “thanking” about getting yourself a pair…

*SIDE NOTE: The sunglass case has doubled as a carrying pouch/clutch for running errands and what not. I love it when packaging has more than one function! (photo via INDIVIDUALSOLE.COM)

I can’t wait to get my BERNARDO’S so I can look just like an Italian Silver Screen Hearthrob…Oh Marcello!!!

Special thanks again to Patrick Wright for hooking me up with the Mosley Tribes and Oliver Peoples Family!!!
